Accenture has launched Digital Insurance Solution Center (DISC) in North America, in Chicago.
DISC allows clients to test digital insurance products and solutions through proof of concept pilots to validate offerings and showcases Internet of Things devices.
DISC offers a cost-effective, low-risk way of experimenting to insurers, with a wide range of technologies before deploying them to customers.
The company said next-generation IT architecture provided by DISC features cloud-based assets and web-services and multi-channel, telematics and data analytics capabilities.
In addition, DISC allows clients to review and interact with prototyped solutions, benchmark successes and failures from past projects and use the learning to develop solutions that respond to the opportunities and challenges insurers face.
Company officials said clients can explore innovative technologies such as analytics, wearables, cloud and Internet of Things products and concepts.
This apart, insurers can access readily scalable, upgradable and always on data architecture and infrastructure.
“Accenture works with insurers in a state-of-the-art environment to help them explore emerging trends, such as robotics and drones, which is crucial as insurance companies become more digital,” said Cindy De Armond, managing director in Accenture Property and Casualty Insurance Services and the policy services offering lead for North America.
In June, Accenture acquired Brightstep, a Swedish digital consulting company focusing on digital content and commerce solutions.
In February, Accenture Federal Services (AFS) acquired Agilex Technologies to enhance its digital capabilities in analytics, cloud and mobility for federal agencies.
